GRADE 2 WEEK 2 TERM 3 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

Press pause on the audio file whenever you need to stop.

Hello to all my Grade 2 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

hello word in block letters with exaggerated 3D shadows

This is week 2 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 2 students are at home!

This is not the way I usually work with Grade 2 students to teach them about Visual Arts but we will be doing this for a few weeks until it is safe to attend school again.

Until then, we will be learning like this – online – using my blog!

You will remember me from our time in the art room together last year.

Yes, it’s me – Mrs Menhennet! Most Cambridge Primary School students that know me, recognise me by my multicoloured hair!!!

Cambridge Primary School students always ask me, “Mrs Menhennet, how come you have all those colours in your hair?”

And I always tell them, “I don’t know. It just grew like that!”

 

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning about the English artist David Hockney and his paintings of water and swimming pools!

  • For students to explore the artworks of English artist David Hockney.

  • For students to experiment and explore drawing  their body moving in water.

  • To introduce the audio function on my blog post.

  • To read along with Mrs Menhennet as she reads the blog post aloud.

 

  • I can view and think about the artworks of David Hockney.

  • I can experiment and explore drawing my body moving in water.

  • I can play the audio function  on the blog post and read along with Mrs Menhennet.

Let’s get started!

David Hockney is an artist who comes from Yorkshire in England in the United Kingdom.

This map shows where Yorkshire is in the United Kingdom.

This map of the world shows where the United kingdom is in relation to Australia.

He was born on the 9th July in 1937. So that means a couple of week’s ago he had his 83rd birthday!

That’s a lot of candles!

This is a photo of David Hockney sitting in a chair and two self portraits.

One of these is from 2003 when he was 67.

One is from 1954 when he was 17.

One is from 1970 when he was 33.

Can you figure out which one is which?

 

I’ll give you some thinking time to see if you can figure it out.

Yes, that’s right! The self portrait of him wearing the red scarf is from when he was 17. He first decided he wanted to be an artist when he was 11.

The photo of him in the chair, dressed so colourfully in a pink checked suit with bright red and green socks, is from when he was 33,

And the self portrait of him painting is from when he was 67.

Well done if you got those correct.

And now David Hockney is 83 years old and he is still painting and creating!

Way back in the 1960s, about 50 years ago, David Hockney travelled to the United States and flew into the airport in sunny California from cold and wintery England.

He was amazed at all the bright blue rectangles he could see out of the plane window as they were coming in to land.

What were those bright blue rectangles he could see?

Yes, swimming pools!

So David Hockney started painting pools, and people swimming, in the bright California sunshine.

This one is called, “A bigger splash”.

This painting always makes me feel like it is an extremely hot day.

The bright blue cloudless sky is almost shimmering in the heat.

 

The paving around the pool would feel hot under my feet and I would hop and skip my way around the pool knowing that the deep blue water would cool my feet down.

 

What is that yellowy rectangle jutting out over the water?

Yes, it is a diving board! What has just happened in this painting?

Someone has walked along the board, bounced a little on the end, and dived into the pool!

All we can see now is the splash flying up into the air.

We can’t see the swimmer at all, as they have already slithered and slipped away, under the surface of the cool blue water.

It’s almost like David Hockney was using his canvas as a photograph to capture that moment of the splash.

And that is what David Hockney discovered there on the side of the pool.

The splashes are always different.

 

The water is always moving.

Lines painted in the pool bend in the water.

There are shadows in the water.

Swimming bodies look different to standing or walking bodies.

 

And swimming bodies make strange, sometimes blurry shapes in the water.

So David Hockney started creating paintings of swimming pools and swimmers and water and nearly every time he painted the water it was different.

He wasn’t afraid to try new ways of doing things and experimented and tried new ways to paint water.

 

We are going to be drawing soon so you will need some paper,

 

some pencils,

or crayons,

or textas.

Some people call textas, markers.

I am going to give you a little bit of time to organise yourself.

I will just sit here on my blog and wait for you to collect some pencils and textas or crayons and some paper.

The size of the paper or what sort of paper it is doesn’t really matter.

So I will just wait until you are ready……..

Oh, you are ready already! That was so fast! Well done!

Let’s look at this painting again.

This painting is called, “Pool with two figures.”

The man on the side of the pool is looking down at the swimmer. I wonder what he is thinking?

His body is positioned very differently to the swimmer. his arms are flat by his sides.

His back is straight. His neck is bent, his eyes looking down at the water.

Even though we can’t see his eyes we know that is what he is doing.

Now let’s look at the swimmer. Is his body standing straight with arms at the sides?

No! His arms are stretching out in front of his head.

I think he is reaching for the end of the pool. Soon he will feel the smooth tiles under his fingers and he will know he is there.

Will he pull his head up out of the water and look at his friend standing there?


Or will he do a quick flip and tumble over in the water to swim back the other way? Will he surprise his friend standing there watching, and splash him?

I want you to draw a picture of yourself swimming in water but

this is GRADE 2 so I want you using your brain and thinking  hard before you start!

Close your eyes.

Yes, I said close your eyes.

I want you to think…… close your eyes!

.

I want you to think about….. Close your eyes!!!

My SUPER ART TEACHER POWERS are telling me you are peeking and I want you to get drawing, so close your eyes!

I want you to stand nice and tall and straight like the man on the side of the pool.

Are you standing? Arms down by your side and your head slightly bent.

I have just used my SUPER ART TEACHER POWERS and you are now moving in SLOW MOTION.

 

Your head is still bent forward and you start to slowly bend your whole body forward, slowly, slowly and topple into the pool with all your clothes on!

How do you feel?

Get your head up out of the water so you can breathe!

You are no longer moving in slow motion but you are very relaxed  and floating in the water. How do your arms and legs move when you are just floating in the water?

They just sort of blob along with the movement of the water, don’t they? It’s very relaxing as this pool water is warm. So it is a bit like blobbing along in a gigantic warm bath.

Now slowly and gently get yourself into a swimming position. Off you go, swimming in the wonderfully soothing warm water.

What are your arms doing?

How are your legs moving?

How does the water affect your hair? Does your hair move in the water?

You can open your eyes now!

Now you are ready to DRAW!

I want you to draw yourself floating in water.

Sometimes, when my students start drawing they start with a teeny tiny drawing because they are not too sure about what they are doing.

 I don’t want you to draw a teeny tiny picture of yourself. The drawing of the body below is way too small.

Grade 3 David Hockney style swimmer painting drawing 64

 

I want you to draw a great BIG picture of yourself floating in water on whatever sized paper you have!

Grade 3 David Hockney style swimmer painting drawing 61

So, let’s practice using your magic finger.

Hold up your magic finger!

Wave it around in the air!

Make sure it is switched on!

Let’s test it out. Draw a small circle in the air.

Draw a large square in the air.

Write your name in the air.

Write your name 3 times really fast in the air!

Oh, you are faster than me as my name is soooooo looooong!

Now put your magic finger in the air and draw your body.

Okay, so now we know it is working use your magic finger to draw a very small picture of yourself on your paper. Your magic finger is fantastic to practice drawing with as it draws invisibly and you never have to rub it out!

Now draw yourself floating in water  a little bit bigger with your magic finger on your paper.

Now draw yourself really big on your paper with your magic finger.

By practising with your magic finger I hope you will end up drawing yourself nice and large on your paper.

 

You can use lots of colour if you like but even if you just use a pencil for this drawing that will be fine. This is just practice so please don’t be too critical of yourself if you don’t think it is perfect. Please keep your drawing so we can look at it again next week.

Have fun,

Mrs Menhennet

GRADE 1 WEEK 2 TERM 3 2020

GRADE 1 WEEK 2 TERM 3 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

 

Hello to all my Grade 1 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

hello word in block letters with exaggerated 3D shadows

This is week 2 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 1 students are at home!

This is not the way I usually work with Grade 1 students to teach them about Visual Arts but we will be doing this for a few weeks until it is safe to attend school again.

Until then, we will be learning like this – online – using my blog!

You will remember me from our time in the art room together last year.

Yes, it’s me – Mrs Menhennet! Most Cambridge Primary School students that know me, recognise me by my multicoloured hair!!!

Cambridge Primary School students always ask me, “Mrs Menhennet, how come you have all those colours in your hair?”

And I always tell them, “I don’t know. It just grew like that!”

 

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of  colour !

  •  To introduce the order of the colours of the rainbow.

  • To remind students of  the elements needed for a rainbow to occur in the sky.

  • To introduce the audio function on my blog post.

  • To read along with Mrs Menhennet as she reads the blog post aloud.

  •  I watch and listen to the video song about Roy G Biv.

  • I can create a rainbow scene artwork with the colours of the rainbow in order.

  • I can create a rainbow scene artwork including the elements needed for a rainbow to occur.

  • I can play the audio function  on the blog post and read along with Mrs Menhennet.

Let’s get started!

We are going to be drawing a rainbow soon so you will need some paper,

 

some pencils,

or crayons,

or textas.

Some people call textas, markers.

I am going to give you a little bit of time to organise yourself.

I will just sit here on my blog and wait for you to collect some pencils and textas or crayons and some paper.

The size of the paper or what sort of paper it is doesn’t really matter.

So I will just wait until you are ready……..

Oh, you are ready already! That was so fast! Well done!

So while you were getting ready to draw I found a fantastic song to share with you so let’s watch the video.

If you need to stop the video at anytime you can just press the pause button

and then come back to the story.

Oh, okay, okay, you already knew that! I’m sorry I forgot how clever Cambridge Primary School Grade 1 students are!

 

 

I will not be surprised if you end up watching that song over and over again.

So what was that little elf’s name?

Yes, that’s right! His name is Roy G Biv.

Roy G Biv.

That’s a very unusual name.

Why do you think he is called Roy G Biv?

Oh, you are too clever.

His name is Roy G Biv because the letters of his name are the colours of the rainbow, in order.

R is for red.

O is for orange.

Y is for yellow.

G is for green.

B is for blue.

I is for indigo.

And V is for violet.

So, if you remember the name Roy G Biv you will remember the order of the colours of the rainbow.

wow

Now, as much as I like the video we just watched and I think the song is fantastic, I don’t like the way they show the colour indigo.

On the video indigo looks like a weird sort of pinky purple when indigo is actually a dark, dark, dark purply blue.

I always describe indigo as being the darkest purply blue of the sky in the evening, just before the sky turns black.

It is a much, much darker blue than the navy blue of our school uniforms.

So now you know all about the order of the colours of the rainbow I want you to draw a fantastic picture of a rainbow but

I don’t just want a picture of a rainbow. This is grade 1 so I want you using your brain and think really hard!

What do we need for a rainbow to appear in the sky? Do you know?

Yes, we need rain!

What else do we need?

Yes, we need the sun!

And there is something else we need. What could it be?

We have the sun and the rain but there is something else we need and it’s a little bit tricky!

Have a think!

Yes, you are too clever. We need clouds as well.

If there weren’t any clouds in the sky it wouldn’t be raining so we need clouds in the sky too.

Okay, so when you do your rainbow drawing I expect to see rain, the sun and clouds or there wouldn’t be a rainbow in your drawing. Does that make sense?

And when we are talking about what we need for a rainbow to appear in the sky we are actually doing Science while we are doing Visual Arts! Wow!

So I want to HEAR you say that you know we are doing Science during Visual Arts. So say it after me. “That’s Science in Visual Arts!”

Wait a minute! That was a bit too quiet. Say it after me, “That’s Science in Visual Arts!”

Hmmm, that was still too quiet. You are in your house and I am in my house so you are going to have to shout it for me to hear you so shout it after me, “That’s Science in Visual Arts!!!”

Wow! That was so loud my ears just fell off!

Right I’ve just stuck my ears back on so we can continue.

Before we start drawing I want you to think about the rainbow being shaped like a hump or an arch.

Sometimes, my students, when drawing a rainbow, start with a teeny tiny arch and they find they can’t fit all the colours into their rainbow as it is just too squishy.

Also a teeny, tiny rainbow might just look way too small on your paper so I don’t want you to draw a teeny tiny rainbow.

I want you to draw a great BIG, HUGE, ENORMOUS rainbow on your paper!

So, let’s practice using your magic finger.

Hold up your magic finger!

Wave it around in the air!

Make sure it is switched on!

Let’s test it out. Draw a small circle in the air.

Draw a large square in the air.

Write your name in the air.

Write your name 3 times really fast in the air!

Oh, you are faster than me as my name is soooooo looooong!

Now put your magic finger in the air and draw an arch.

Okay, so now we know it is working use your magic finger to draw a very small arch on your paper. Your magic finger is fantastic to practice drawing with as it draws invisibly and you never have to rub it out!

Now draw an arch  a little bit bigger with your magic finger on your paper.

Now draw a really big arch on your paper with your magic finger.

By practising that arch shape with your magic finger I hope you will end up drawing a nice large rainbow on your paper.

So your drawing needs to include a large rainbow, the sun, rain and clouds. You can even include a little Roy G Biv elf if you want!

But this is grade 1 so that is not all.

I don’t want to see any white paper gaps in your drawing.

Do you remember last year when we were painting and I told you I didn’t want any white paper gaps in your painting? Well this is just like that.

If you draw a really large rainbow, with all it’s colours in order.

And you draw the sun and lots of clouds and rain and Roy G Biv, there shouldn’t be much space left anyway.

But if there is white space left on your paper I want you to think about what you can draw to fill the space so your drawing is complete.

So, let’s make a list of what you need to draw –

  • a really big rainbow with all the colours in order

  • the sun

  • lots of clouds

  • lots of rain

  • an elf called Roy G Biv, if you want

  • no white paper gaps

Have fun,

Mrs Menhennet

GRADE PREP WEEK 2 TERM 3 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

GRADE PREP WEEK 2 TERM 3 2020

Hello to all my Grade PREP students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

hello word in block letters with exaggerated 3D shadows

This is week 2 of Term 3 2020 and all my Prep students are at home!

This is not the way I usually work with Prep students to teach them about Visual Arts but we will be doing this for a few weeks until it is safe to attend school again.

Until then, we will be learning like this – online – using my blog!

You have probably seen me at school. You might even have met me when I have been on Yard Duty or I have visited your classroom.

Yes, it’s me – Mrs Menhennet! Most Cambridge Primary School students that know me, recognise me with my multicoloured hair!!!

Cambridge Primary School Prep students always ask me, “Mrs Menhennet, how come you have all those colours in your hair?”

And I always tell them, “I don’t know. It just grew like that!”

 

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of  self portraits !

What is a self portrait?

A portrait is a picture of a person.

A SELF portrait is a picture of ??????????

Yes, that’s right – a self portrait is a picture of yourself!

Okay, we are going to be drawing a self portrait soon so you will need some paper,

 

some pencils,

or crayons,

or textas.

Some people call textas, markers.

And I would really like it if you had a small mirror so you can look at yourself.

So I am going to give you a little bit of time to organise yourself.

I will just sit here on my blog and wait for you to collect some pencils and textas, some paper and, hopefully, a mirror.

If you don’t have a small mirror you can use to look at yourself perhaps you can move yourself to draw on the floor  somewhere in your house, maybe in the bathroom, where there is a big mirror,

so you can use the big mirror to look at yourself.

So I will just wait until you are ready……..

Oh, you are ready already! That was so fast! Well done!

So while you were getting ready to draw I found a beautiful story to share with you so let’s watch the video.

If you need to stop the video at anytime you can just press the pause button

and then come back to the story.

Oh, okay, okay, you already knew that! I’m sorry I forgot how clever Cambridge Primary School Prep students are!

 

<h2

PART 2 READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET

 

Oh, that was a fun story about all sorts of faces.

Now I would like you to get your small or big mirror

and have a very good look at your face!

Can you see your beautiful eyes?

What colour are they?

Can you see your eyelashes?

Are they light or dark?

Are they short or long?

Are they curly or straight?

Can you see your eyebrows?

Are your eyebrows neat and tidy or crazy and all over the place?

Eyebrows are great for adding expression to your face.

What do your eyebrows do when you make an angry face?

What happens to your eyebrows when you make a surprised face?

Noses come in all shapes and sizes. It’s amazing how different they can be.

 

Mouths can also be very different.

 

Have you got all of your teeth?

Or are some of your teeth missing?

Now it’s time for you to draw your self portrait. I want you to draw a picture of you!

 

Have fun and have a positive attitude about your drawing. We are just practising!

This video made by the brilliant Mrs Hahn from Mini Matisse.blogspot.com will show you what to do.

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET PART 3

I hope you had fun drawing your self portrait.

You don’t have to submit your drawing from this week.

Bye,

Mrs Menhennet

Here are the Prep 2020 self portraits.

Hello to all my Grade 3/4/5/6/E students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

I can’t believe it is Week 8 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT

is an art project that started in Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. in 2006 when some secondary school Visual Arts teachers got together over a coffee.

Those teachers wanted to come up with an idea that all their students could work on together and thus the Hexagon Project was born.

Now thousands of students from all over the world participate in this annual project.

Cambridge Primary School participates in the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT every second year and has done since 2012.

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT reflects on how we are all INTERDEPENDENT.

Most students easily understand the meaning of independence.

You start off as a baby not being able to do much and eventually learn to feed yourself and dress yourself as you learn and grow.

Once you start school you are developing as a child and a student and increasingly doing all sorts of things by yourself.

Being INTERDEPENDENT is how we all DEPEND ON EACH OTHER in different ways.

We are all –

  • local citizens (family, Cambridge PS, neighbourhood, Hoppers Crossing)

  • regional citizens (Werribee, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

  • global citizens

connected to and INTERDEPENDENT on each other for so many things and in so many ways!

How are you connected to others by your INTERDEPENDENCE???

Here are 2 short videos for you to watch about INTERDEPENDENCE.


It is very clear that we all have a much greater understanding of our INTERDEPENDENCE in 2020 after being locked down at home in isolation for many weeks and having time to think about how much we rely on each other!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT  for students from aged 4-18+ uses the shape of a hexagon as a way for students to reflect on their INTERDEPENDENCE in an artwork.

I want you to create an artwork, using whatever materials you like, in the shape of a hexagon, reflecting your understanding of INTERDEPENDENCE.

GRADE 6 WEEK 7 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

GRADE 6 WEEK 7 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

Your Famous Artwork recreation is OVERDUE!

It was due on Monday 11th May 2020!

You must submit your artwork or your report for Semester 1 will state NEEDS ATTENTION in the Visual Arts section.

Hello to all my Grade 6 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennet

I can’t believe it is Week 7 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of the Worldwide Hexagon Project!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT

is an art project that started in Scranton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. in 2006 when some secondary school Visual Arts teachers got together over a coffee.

Those teachers wanted to come up with an idea that all their students could work on together and thus the Hexagon Project was born.

Now thousands of students from all over the world participate in this annual project.

Cambridge Primary School participates in the Worldwide Hexagon project every second year and has done since 2012.

The Worldwide Hexagon Project reflects on how we are all INTERDEPENDENT.

Most students easily understand the meaning of independence.

You start off as a baby not being able to do much and eventually learn to feed yourself and dress yourself as you learn and grow.

Once you start school you are developing as a child and a student and increasingly doing all sorts of things by yourself.

Being INTERDEPENDENT is how we all DEPEND ON EACH OTHER in different ways.

We are all –

  • local citizens (family, Cambridge PS, neighbourhood, Hoppers Crossing)

  • regional citizens (Werribee, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

  • global citizens

connected to and INTERDEPENDENT on each other for so many things and in so many ways!

How are you connected to others by your interdependence???

Here are 2 short videos for you to watch about INTERDEPENDENCE.


It is very clear that we all have a much greater understanding of our INTERDEPENDENCE in 2020 after being locked down at home in isolation for many weeks and having time to think about how much we rely on each other!

The WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT  for students aged 4-18+ uses the shape of a hexagon as a way for students to reflect on their INTERDEPENDENCE in an artwork.

I want you to create an artwork, using whatever materials you like, in the shape of a hexagon, reflecting your understanding of INTERDEPENDENCE.

When your artwork is complete I want you to photograph your hexagonal artwork with your device and send it to me by Saturday 6th June 2020.

I will then mark that you have completed a hexagon shaped artwork onto Compass and this will become part of your Semester 1 report for 2020.

The hexagon template for your artwork is available here. You are encouraged to print this hexagon and trace it to use as a template so all hexagons are the same size. If you are at school you can come and collect a printed hexagon from me.

I will then print up the photos of  all your hexagon shaped artworks and display them at Cambridge PS.

If YOU want your artwork to be part of the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT for 2020 you need to upload the photo of your artwork onto Artsonia.  This is your choice. If you do not want to participate in the WORLDWIDE HEXAGON PROJECT you do not have to.
